Ocasio-Cortez Tries to Mock ‘Older Male GOP’ Member, Turns Out He’s a Democrat

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued her tenuous relationship with reality Thursday, taking a swipe at an “older male member” of the GOP for posing with a cardboard cutout of “young female legislators.”

There’s just one problem – that older Republican turned out to be a prominent Democrat.

Ocasio-Cortez shared a tweet from the Republican Party of Kentucky featuring a gentleman standing next to a cardboard cutout of the New York socialist.

“GOP: Let’s pose our older male members next to cardboard cutouts of young female legislators,” she wrote.

Embarrassing Gaffe

Ocasio-Cortez was clearly insinuating that the older gentleman standing next to a cutout of a young woman was creepy. Perhaps she thought the man was catcalling her.

Regardless, the new voice of the Democrat party had to quickly delete the tweet when it turned out the man in question is Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY).

Amazingly, the throwback being referenced in the tweet is a story about the Louisville Democratic Socialists threatening Yarmuth with a primary if he doesn’t conform to their radical ‘Medicare for All’ platform.

In that threat, they cited Ocasio-Cortez’ stunning primary victory in New York.

Adding to the trifecta of stupidity, Ocasio-Cortez, just minutes after mistakenly calling a Democrat colleague an ‘old male Republican,’ mocked GOP politicians and pundits as being “1st grade readers.”

That’s called projection, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.

An Explainer For the Challenged Democrat

Let’s explain this in terms that a first-grader can understand.

Yarmuth is a Democrat. He is on the budget committee. He is the chairman. This chairman needs to find a way to pay for your $93 trillion Green New Deal.

Better yet, Ocasio-Cortez is a co-sponsor on Budget Committee Chairman Yarmuth’s bill, the Appalachian Communities Health Emergency Act (ACHE).

Did she really not know this? Does she even read?

Ocasio-Cortez has had a banner month of April. Aside from inadvertently mocking an older Democrat as creepy, she has accomplished the following feats in just the last couple of weeks:

  • Claimed the Department of Veterans Affairs offers “the highest quality care to our veterans.”
  • Said the President should be impeached for providing tax cuts to the middle class and asking about citizenship on the Census.
  • Narrated a bats*** crazy short film about the Green New Deal.

NRCC national press secretary Michael McAdams blasted Ocasio-Cortez, referencing that video.

“Maybe spend less time making coloring books like a 4-year-old and more time getting to know your fellow socialists — even the old white male ones you seem to hate like John Yarmuth!” he wrote.

Come now, that’s more like second-grade work.

  • Actually, a better representation of Ms. Cortez is having either a Republican or a Democrat standing next to a cut-out of Ms. Cortez in a straight jacket and a mute over her mouth. Certainly, she couldn't find fault with that. They would be telling the truth about AOC.

  • I know what, make all Congress, both chambers, be required to use the V.A. for their health care needs. I bet they wouldn't brag about it then, or they would make it work.

  • Well... let's see, Auntie Maxie miscalls insurance people for Obummer's fiasco with student loans, now Occasional-Cortex miscalls this one. They really are sadly, badly deranged. They truly wouldn't know their backsides from a hole in the ground, as the saying goes...

  • because they are the ones who commit most crimes, after the demon-rats, but the others get locked up for theirs.
